·3 min read

Thanksgiving is a time to celebrate what you’re most thankful for, and, let's be real, stuff your face with family and friends. While you prepare to make the most flawless Thanksgiving dinner, complete with flavorful turkey, delectable side dishes, amazing desserts and inventive cocktails, you’ll want to be sure you have everything you need to follow each family recipe to the T.

With that in mind, we’ve created this list of every grocery store and liquor store you can think of that will be open on Thanksgiving Day. Trust us, your future self will thank you for anticipating your last-minute grocery store run. Even if you’re opting to save time in the kitchen with a pre-cooked Thanksgiving dinner, we know just the place for you to visit ahead of time.

If you, like me, are a Type A personality and have had all of your food plans taken care of way before Thanksgiving is even a thought in most people’s minds, then you may be more concerned about stores where you can get a head start on all of the Black Friday deals. While Walmart will not be open on Thanksgiving Day (and neither will Target!), there are tons of other clothing stores and department stores that will be operating on the holiday.
